You are my hero, it works!

I did some testing on FreeBSD the last week, here is what I found:

"tdebase/Makefile" has a line "USES+= samba", but there is no "samba" package nor port. It compiles fine without this line, but I have samba44 installed. I'll take a closer look next week.

gcc4: TDE compiles and is fully functional, but I did not try the screenlocking function. :-)
gcc5: "tdeaccessibility" and "tdeadmin" do not compile when gcc5 is installed.

Thank you very much for your excelent work!

Nik
